the federal budget surplot plus or deficit. obviously it's been some time since we have run anything like a significant budget surplus we went into the recession carrying a farrell substantial deficit and obviously that really ballooned and got much much worse and what we are facing now are really the biggest bulletin deficits that the united states economy has faced since the second world war we are moving in the right direction it's getling smogger and it's still a farrell daunting challenge and this is what was westbound bend the whole fiscal cliff last year and we ended up with an 11th hour deal to avoid the worst of the fiscal live kcliff and i'm not going to read all of the stuff on this slide but basically what we got was tax increases that effect the working poor primarily and the very affluent and not really not much of an impact on the middle class and you can may be have your own political opinions about that but the spending cuts didn't really take much effect at all. the spending cuts are now poised to go into effect march 1st and to make thing more interesting we run back in
at that committee however that we run at that deficit but the overall policy decision was this was a good thing to support and move forward and hence here we are. >> i would augment a couple of things. we felt that the gap in funding for us it's a relatively small investment to add an important recreation amenity. we lack skate board parks in the city and within our purview and something for us to absorb and the way that the funding mechanism is going to work with dpw funding the maintenance and in our accounts and i was informed there is an escalator that helps and interest on the lump sum and help close the gape a bit. i don't know if all the way but it will help so it turns out that the last amendment to change the way the funding is actually structured may result in more interest funds for us to help close the maintenance gap. >> commissioner bonilla. >> yes. i noticed that in this mou it does memorize the $66,000 operating expenses, but it doesn't memorialize the monies that rec and park will be responsible for. shouldn't that happen as part of this mou? >> for give me commissioner i d
million deficit we had to renegotiate our contract and peenings for the first time and pension that happens an issue in california were part of the state system and still not ready for the shake-out on the development and so, i'll like to think it's -- [inaudible/incomprehensible] level and i think that what it gibbs you time do is to start working on some of these dreams and really give development opportunities and that is what it's like despite the evidence -- the general fund and in our economic outlet team and that we -- [inaudible] and working and -- of that and i know -- and i worked on chinese investments because we are looking at capital investment and is for the amazing growth that the bay area faces. >> yeah i talked to somebody the other day that was familiar with the san francisco budget situation and i remember looking at projections in the future and it was lower so, it seems that happy days are here for san francisco what does this give you the freedom do >>> well first of all, i would not use those phrases, but i'll say that it reflects some of the smart
whether or not psycho paths have affective deficits. absolutely they do. there has been hundreds of years of psychiatric research shows that they do. you have this two prong thing. on the one hand more dangerous if you release them and don't treat them. on the other hand, they're affectively different. there was a very nice article in the "new york times" magazine on mother's day about children who have these emerging traits and how we would develop and understand and treat them. it's a small percentage. my goal is to develop better treatment so they can keep them off that trajectory towards life course persistent problems. >> are you saying that people that have the brain structure that you have identified will always be lacking in volitional control or impulse receive to the extent that they are criminals? do we have a subset of people that are criminals because of their brains? >> i should really differentiate psychopathy from criminality. there are a lot of reasons why individuals engage in different criminal activity. it's a very small percentage of prisoners that are just about 15 t
to eat right, you know. [laughter] >> that being said, i do believe that deficits in certain essential aminnow acids and other types of things can certainly increase people's impulsivity. they can increase people's chances of not -- of those types of things, yeah. >> and one final question and i'm going to rephrase it a little bit, but why is it that we treat people who have, say, traumatic brain injuries or other diagnosed mental illnesses in the criminal justice system rather than in the mental health system? [applause] >> so what i showed you today was to give you that exact what is neuroscience doing in the legal is system and so that person of the person with the tumor, you could all see that and so can a radiologist. but the else that we do know of those images. no radiologist can just see by looking at them. we are so sensitive to individual differences in i.q., in age, in all of these different availables, psychopathy scores, whatever it is, we can develop beautiful pictures of these things. so the question is, how is the legal system going to deal with all of these different,
million dollar deficit. we were able to cover that through her leadership at the board. of course, all the board's cooperation. she also did it similar to the ways that i've been wanting to do it with the board, that is work with everybody, labor, our advocates, our nonprofits have all been recognized in the strong effort while we as people who are fiscally responsible for the health of our city balanced everything, and that is why i think we talk a lot about our success today. and i want to point to the fact that i think one of the reasons why moody's perhaps made their move to upgrade our ratings was because they heard the rumor mill already about who we're about to appoint. [laughter] >> they wanted to reinforce that. but it's an incredible thing. i amoeba, -- mean, i think other cities are challenged by their ratings and we in the city working together, all of us sacrificing what we've done and having good discussions, are turning it around not only for us, but for future generations. and, so, i am pleased to announce carmen as the new assessor and that she will lead the effort th
